    I have a 700/208 combo in a 89' S-10. The drive on the back of the case is mechanical, but my speedometer is electronic. Does anyone know of a mechanical drive unit that will pop into the back of the case that has a electric plug, instead of a cable? Dodge uses the same thing on there trucks but I believe theirs is a 4-pulse set-up where GM used a 2-pulse set up until 92'.

    check with www.jagsthatrun.com I know they have some VSS drivers, probably about what you are looking for.

    Don't know of any mechanically driven GM application for what you speak, although I too have heard of the Dodge setup. Couldn't figure out what year/application for sure though, so I could do some research on it.

    Chevrolet used a VSS driven off of the speedometer in the S trucks until 88 or 89. That is how my 86 body is. Maybe you could get speedo out of older truck and run mechanical cable up to it. Might save a few bucks, although JTR sells one for around $80.00 I think.
